Henderson was born in September 1967 at Glapthorn, Northamptonshire. He later was educated at Laxton Grammar School, before going up to Pembroke College, Oxford.[1] While studying at Oxford he made his debut in first-class cricket for Oxford University against Hampshire at Oxford in 1987.[2] He made twenty further first-class appearances for Oxford, with his final match against Cambridge University coming in 1990.[2] Playing as a right-arm medium-fast bowler, Henderson took 25 wickets at an expensive average of 61.88, with best figures of 3 for 48.[3] With the bat, he scored 186 runs with a high score of 44.[4] In addition to playing first-class cricket, Henderson also played minor counties cricket for Bedfordshire in 1991 and 1992, making three appearances in the Minor Counties Championship and a single appearance in the MCCA Knockout Trophy.[5][6] He left Bedfordshire at the end of the 1991 season, later playing minor counties cricket for Oxfordshire in eight Minor Counties Championship matches between 1993–96.[5]

After graduating from Oxford he became a schoolteacher, teaching biology at Wellington College, where he was also a housemaster.[7] He is a two time winner of the President's Putter golf tournament, played between former and current blues golfers from Oxford and Cambridge universities, with Henderson winning the tournament in 2004 and 2007.[8]
